Want to take a selfie with the stars, meet your sporting icon or mingle with world leaders and royalty? Well all of this and more is possible at Madame Tussauds, one of Amsterdam’s most popular interactive attractions, housed in a beautiful old building facing onto Dam Square.
Madame Tussauds Amsterdam was the first exhibition of this centuries-old institution to be opened permanently outside of Great Britain, in 1970. Since then, it has remained on the cutting edge of popular culture, with the constant updating of wax figures in addition to the all-time favourites! This attraction is fun for all ages and the perfect place to visit on a rainy day, perfectly located right in the city centre.
In addition to world famous celebrities, the Amsterdam Madame Tussauds exhibition has a great variety of waxworks unique to The Netherlands. For those who have enjoyed viewing the classic works of the Dutch masters in other Amsterdam museum, for example, this fantastic city-centre attraction’s new exhibit ‘IamArt’ offers the chance to step inside the works of painters such as Van Gogh and Rembrandt. The exhibit is not limited to Dutch painters, however, and climbing into one of Escher’s paintings or accompanying Mona Lisa, offers some opportunities for some brilliantly funny photos!
A whole lot of fun for the whole family, this attraction is rightfully one of the city’s most visited, and well worth checking out during your time in Amsterdam. Offering so much more than a display of waxworks, Madame Tussauds has constantly evolved throughout its fascinating history and many people are surprised by quite how much fun this brilliant attraction can be for visitors of all ages! Along with plenty of photos of you and your friends or family in Amsterdam, arguably one of the most picturesque cities in the world, a few snaps with your favourite celebrities or icons is a great way to remember your time in this brilliant city!
